For some reason Apple will accept podcast submissions only from people who have a valid iTunes store account. What that means is if you don’t own a credit card issued in a country in which the iTunes Store is available, you can’t submit.
Could someone please submit Herro Flom Japan’s RSS? A friend of mine in the US did it for me the day after iTunes 4.9 came out but I’m still not showing up. Maybe it got lost.
This one too. This guy from Australia is in the same boat.
(Thank you Kevin!)
Are there people out there who wouldn’t mind giving international podcasters a hand? All you have to do is paste their URLs into the form in the iTunes podcast directory. I’d like to set up a mailing list where people willing to help would subscribe, and podcasters from iTunes-less countries could send a request to the ML with their URL. You paste the URL, reply to the request e-mail, CC to the requester, done. Problem solved, podcasters happy, listeners have access to more content, world peace breaks out, I get a Nobel Prize, Angelina Jolie dumps Brad, and all those who helped get to hear the podcast of Angie and I consummating our wedding vows.
